On April 23, 2013 Walker County unveiled and dedicated the Walker County Crime Victim’s Memorial Fountain, the first of its kind, located in the center of the Courthouse Square in downtown Jasper, Alabama. The fountain was established after District Attorney Bill Adair, Jr. met with victims in April 2011 shortly after taking office. The victims’ families expressed and interest in a memorial and the District Attorney along with several of these families worked for two years to get approval from local government entities and to fund and construct this fountain themselves.
All across the state, we have many dedicated district attorneys and assistant district attorneys who support and work hard for victims.
VOCAL would like to recognize Assistant District Attorney Angie Hamilton of the 11th Judicial Circuit in Lauderdale County who went above and beyond in seeking justice. Angie took on two cold cases which she worked in addition to her regular work load. After much hard work and many hours, both cases were solved. In fact indictments on both cases came down the same day.
Next Board of Director's Meeting will be on Friday, May 10th at 11 AM. Thanks to all our board members for volunteering their valuable time to support crime victims.
